Ive recently had a change in my life and decided to do a part resto on a 1950 Bedford that ive just bought . so hopefully when needed you guys can give me some ideas and help when needed .
The reto will be : Get it running right , Breaks , Inerior and a new tray .
So hopefully its not to hard . Ive never worked on anything this old .

Welcome to the forum.
Your Bedford looks to be in very good general condition. It should be a straight forward restoration.
You can expect any vehicle that has hydraulic brakes to need them overhauled and any truck you buy to need a new tray.
There are plenty of Beddy enthusiasts here who should be able to help with information and maybe parts.
What part of the world are you in? I have clues to brake and other suppliers in and south of Melbourne but no use to you if you are a million miles away.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,
There have been quite a few Bedford projects on here, but for starters trawl back though the A for Austin thread and all will be revealed.
The Bedford trucks introduced in 1949 (design dates from 1939 and before) were 'K' 30 cwt, 'M' 3 ton, and 'O' 5 ton. Yours has the more common Holden cab based on Chev pressings. Bonnet and wings are pommy.
Yours looks very complete and straight so should be good.
